Vietnamese airline has been fined for hosting a mid-flight dance by bikini-clad beauty pageant contestants without first gaining permission.
Low-cost carrier VietJet Air was fined $US1000 ($A945) by the nation's aviation authorities for organising the Hawaiian-themed dance to celebrate its maiden flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the tourist hub of Nha Trang, state-owned newspaper Tuoi Tre reported on Thursday.
Five women, all candidates in a local beauty contest, performed the three-minute dance on the August 3 flight while passengers recorded the show on camera phones and later posted clips online, the paper added. The airline "violated local aviation regulations" by organising "an unapproved show on a flight," Nguyen Trong Thang, chief inspector of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, was quoted as saying.

I got kicked out of the slut walk for trying to bid on the participants.

I'm wondering who would actually be the one complaining?

The extra publicity they get from this may be worth paying a measly 1 grand.

Yeah, I'd consider suggesting a fine for airlines who don't do this.
